Lakme is an Indian brand which has a wide variety of products form cosmetics to skin care products. These products are specially designed by experts to suit the Indian skin tones. The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is a newly formulated lip color crayon and will give your lips a soft matte finish. It is also a mixture of olive oil and jojoba oil which will help to condition your lips. These crayons come in a sketch pen like packaging and with a free dual Lakme sharpener with each of the crayons. Just think of your lips as a canvas and fill using these lip crayons to get a smooth even matte look.

Today, I am going to review one of the above mentioned Shades that is Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon 03 Candid Coral.
Price : Rs. 185.00 for 2.2 g of Lip Crayon with a free Dual Lakme Sharpener. Buy Here.
This Lip Crayon comes in a pencil or sketch like color coded packaging with a black cap over it just like the sketch pens which are quite similar to sketches used during our school days. The band name and shade name is written on the crayon and the price and time upto when one can use this i.e. the expiry time is written on the cap as well. The color of the crayon is similar to shade of the crayon which I like the most in this range. Although, the packaging is not of good quality but we cannot expect so much from Lakme in just Rs. 185. It is so light weight and easy to carry around while travelling and its color coded packaging makes it easy to distinguish from other crayons if one has many of them. When i get it, it is already sharpened and after 4-5 uses, one will need to sharpen it again which is also a good thing.
Shade, Texture & Pigmentation :
This is a bright coral shade with some orange undertones to it and this will suit from fair to medium skinned tones. This is great shade for summers and will work best for office and for college going girls due to its affordable price. It gives a waxy like feel which I really do not mind. It is nicely pigmented and provides sheer coverage which is buildable and one will need to swipe 2-3 times to get the full coverage. It is not transfer proof as well. After a meal or some snacks, it does transter means it stays there but not like as when applied meaning it demands reapplication or touch up. After 3-4 hours or so even without meals, it starts to fade from my lips so a touch up is really a need at that time. It is a rich mixture of Olive Oil & Jojoba Oil which gives moisture to the lips. It is a creamy formula with some tiny shimmer in it and settles into a matte finish. It does not settle into the fine lines. It provides enough hydration despite its matte texture.
What I lIke About Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon 03 Candid Coral :
- Color Crayon Packaging.
- Olive Oil & Jojoba Oil, present in the crayon, keep the lips hydrated.
- Affordable Price.
- Easily Available.
- Suitable for Indian skin tones.
- Does not settle into fine line of lips.
- Quite Lightweight.
- Travel Friendly due to small size.
- Comes with a free Dual Sharpener From Lakme which we don`t need to buy separately.
What I Dislike About Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon 03 Candid Coral :
- Waxing feel.
- A lot of product get wasted due to the sharpening nature but again in 185 how much one can expect from Lakme.
Final Verdict :
It is a really nice coral shade with orange undertones to it and will flatter nicely on fair to medium skinned toned beauties. It is so affordable and easy to travel with. Also, For someone who is on budget and needs something which at the same time gives a classy feel then this shade is to go for. This is best for college going girls and for working ladies too. If you do not mind reapply then this is great for you girls.
